Hard Drive replacement
Its not been a good couple of days where IT is involved!
Have a two year old Acer laptop. Does a good job and pleased with it. However began to get a few problems that I was told pointed to the hard drive begining to fail. Bought replacement hard drive and advice on how "easy" to do.
Backed up all files to external hard drive, removed old hard drive, inserted new hard drive. So far so good. Laptop supplied with Windows Vista pre-installed, but also came with Windows 7 upgrade kit.
So someone gave me a Windows Vista disk to get it going, with the idea of running the Windows 7 upgarde kit. Inserted Windows Vista disk and going great guns until it came to "Product Key code". Tried to insert the code on the bottom of the laptop (MS windows sticker) and get - your productcode cannot be validated! Bugger
What do i do next? Have the Windows 7 upgrade with product key, but never had the Vista disk.
